LOS ANGELES - OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network announced today that its popular relationship series “Family or Fiancé” will continue with new episodes every Saturday night at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, following “Love & Marriage: Huntsville.” Hosted by relationship coach Tracy McMillan, “Family or Fiancé” follows engaged couples who bring their disapproving families together for three days under one roof. In this high-stakes social experiment, couples and their extended families participate in activities designed to strengthen bonds, explore differences, and see their relationships in a new way. The series is also available to stream the same day on discovery+.
On average, this season, “Family or Fiancé” ranks number one in the Saturday 10pm hour across broadcast and cable with African-American W25-54 and number one across all cable with African-American W18-49, W18+, households and total viewers.
In the upcoming episodes of “Family or Fiancé,” relationship coach Tracy McMillian continues to work with engaged couples desperately seeking the blessings of their loved ones. For better or worse, they will navigate issues between mothers and daughters, sisters and brothers, broken families, tragic loss, and even non-traditional marriages. At the end of three days spent together completing tasks and coaching sessions, the families will decide whether they can bless these unions going forward, or if their reservations and concerns about the marriage still stand. Then, the couples must decide whether they will choose their families, or their fiancés, when planning their future.
“Family or Fiancé” is executive produced by Jonathan Murray, Julie Pizzi, Erica Ross, Jonathan Singer and Erika Bryant of Bunim/Murray Productions in partnership with OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
